About this project

This project has been inspired by the fire breathing big BHP Group B rally cars that were banned in the mid 1980's. With a love for these cars in mind I'm creating a mid engine RWD track day car using a MK6 Escort as the base car and a Subaru Impreza turbo engine/gearbox to power it.

With the Subaru engine being quite light and having a low centre of gravity, (due to the flat 4 configuration) the car should have a good power to weight ratio and hopefully handle well, with a good suspension setup.

Winter Update.

Ok, so alot has happened over the last 12 months and its about time i updated the website. All the suspension and subframe pick up points are finished and the whole underside and the engine bay have been pained with and industrial enamel gloss white for a more durable finish. The subframes, suspension arms, trailing arms and the rear diff are all freshly painted and fitted to the car so its now rolling and well on the way to a finish. The engine and gearbox are also fitted and the seat mounts are welded in,the steering column has been fabricated and fitted, the next jobs are to weld in the door bars to finish the roll cage and paint the inside of the car so i can then fit the wiring loom, dash board,pedal box etc etc.

Please note the Gallery is currently under construction and i will be adding plenty pictures as soon as it is finished.

You can check out this link to see more pictures until the Gallery is finished.
